K9 Bodie succumbed to a gunshot wound sustained on May 18th, 2012, while attempting an apprehension of a wanted subject.

The man had been released from prison due to overcrowding and had an outstanding warrant for a felon in possession of a deadly weapon. The man fled from officers in a stolen vehicle and lead officers on a pursuit, that was ultimately terminated due to the dangers it posed to the community. The vehicle was located abandoned a short time later and the suspect was observed by a patrol officer walking in the area of Crocker Riverside Elementary School.

K9 Bodie and his handler responded to the area as the suspect and his girlfriend fled on foot. The male subject was chased into the backyard of 1111 Robertson Way, where the man turned and opened fire, striking Bodie in the face. Bodie's handler returned fire, killing the subject.

Bodie suffered a shattered jaw and 60% of tongue was severed. He died from complications of the wounds on November 8th, 2016.
